Featuring more than 50 Disney characters, this production includes the box office smash hits Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory and Disney’s Frozen.

The production will be skating into Glasgow at the SSE Hydro from April 11-14.

Producer Nicole Feld said: “What I like best about Disney On Ice is that we are privileged to bring classic and modern Disney and Pixar stories to home towns around the world live on ice.

“In this production, our amazing creative team chose action-packed stories that really resonate with not only kids today, but with their parents as well.

“The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice has everything from an underwater adventure in Finding Dory, to the comedic duo Timon and Pumbaa in The Lion King.”

Crowd interaction is a key component to the Disney On Ice experience and director Patty Vincent has focused on immersing audiences in key segments of the production.

“In The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice, we’ve created a beautiful moment where an audience member gets to release a lantern with Rapunzel and Flynn at the beginning of “I See the Light,” said Patty.

“It’s breathtaking to watch, and then Rapunzel and Flynn skate a beautiful duet with the lanterns glowing above them.”

The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice brings beloved characters, both classic and new to life through cutting edge figure-skating, eye-catching costumes and stunning set designs.

Innovative lighting, thrilling special effects, high-flying jumps and breathtaking skating all add to the spectacle of The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice.
